Worldwide e-Learning market continues to witness rapid developments which are driving adoption among the academic and business sectors. Robust growth in the online learning market is driven by increasing accessibility and cost-effectiveness of learning and training initiatives. Multiple advantages offered by e-Learning technology in the form of faster delivery, reduced learning cost, greater degree of flexibility, and ability to generate user-specific content are driving demand for e-Learning programs. Another factor favoring adoption of e-Learning products and technologies is the proliferation of Internet.

Driven by the need for technically skilled workforce, the corporate sector has been the early adopter of e-Learning programs.
